two debates left. it's important for mitt romney not to have a let down in the next debate which is more of a town hall structure. and that bodes well for president obama. but if mitt romney can keep going with the strength that he did in the first debate, it will be a very tough election for president obama. >> chris, let's bring you in. boris reckons that romney smashed it then this time around. obama looks i guess a bit disengaged from the whole thing. did he let himself down last night, chris? >> well, first let me address one point, the comments boris made about the 47%. to be direct about it, governor romney called 47% of americans victims. now, that is not necessarily a winning strategy. going back in terms of the debate, i'll be the first one to admit that governor romney had a very good debate. he came out strong. he came out from the first answer out, he was out there being very bold and aggressive. i think the president had some good moments, in particular on the exchange on health care, but what he didn't did which i find inexplicable is what's been working the last 90 d

i am and i'm also worried if romney wins the election he's going to slow things down, and i think that's bad. >> obama or romney? >> romney. >> romney is going to slow things down. can i add to what you said, john, is it also true the on sense of job growth could make you pessimistic about the future in that you don't have the support for the recovery you would expect? i agree higher job growth is not necessarily an omen of better economic growth but in the absence, mark and michelle also, this is what? let answer not get excited. it's 114 on the payroll and say it's revised up next month, revisions hold to 150. it's still a 1.5, 2% economy. we're not making huge inroads here. >> it's still a challenging environment and i think what's encourage something we're making slow progress but by no means are we accelerating to a much different business cycle. the fundamental challenges that the economy faces are still there. you still have the fiscal cliff at the end of the year which is going to be a concern. you still have credit conditions that haven't returned to a normal environment.

two points in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio? because for a while, they were both tracking. i mean, florida by the gallup poll, he was down by nine points, romney was. what happened in florida? >> there was a poll last week that showed florida down nine for romney. i think that's too high. the campaign has begun advertising -- the romney campaign, that is, advertising more heavily in florida than they had been previousism we see

benefit -- medical device companies. there is hope if romney's elected and repeels the affordable care act, then the device tax will be repealed helping out these companies. that tax will pretty much go right down to their bottom line if it is taken away. so that's a nice 3% to 5% benef benefit for those companies. >> what about the losers? >> if romney wins, one potential loser is we kept hearing last night how he'll lower the tax rates and simplify the code. by eliminating all these deductions. if the code is simplified, you could see accountants and online tax preparers hurt such as an h and r block as more americans theoretically in a simpler tax code would be able to file their own taxes. a loser under it would be in some of these health care stocks, this is romney being elected, all the companies that benefited from the affordable care act and the increased coverage. pbms would be hurt. it is like an express script, perhaps. or a hospital company. those would be also negatively impacted. >> what about anything with the color green? in other words, environmentally friendly, renewa

counting down to an election right now. you seem to view the prospect of a romney resurgence rather positive. why? >> i don't believe that another four years of what we've just seen is going to get us out of the woods. for that reason, i think it's time for a change. if i look at what obama is projecting, it will be higher taxes, higher debt, and it will bei be not much else other than more government spending. and that won't make the difference. so i think fiscal uncertainty has to be removed in order for the corporates to spend the huge amount of cash that they're holding. and at this point not investing. the fiscal -- i don't want to call it the fiscal cliff because that's not so important. the question is getting certainty into the situation for corporates to invest again. >> okay, good to have you on on. plenty more to come from you. but what do you think the jobs number will be? let us know. e-mail or tweet us. so just over an hour into the trading day here in europe. let's show you where we stand. just weighted to the up side. pretty flat day for european stocks. 6:4 advancer
